Bordeaux Latitude Washington Attitude®
"...trop pare' Fini!" ("fussy finished!")
— Polly Mellen,
At Le Chateau, we're all about lack of pretension. Under the winemaking prowess of veteran winemaker Joe Hudon, we take our wines seriously, but believe that drinking wine should be fun and adventurous. Each bottle of Le Chateau's terroir driven wine tells a story. We believe in letting the varietals express themselves, and exude a sense of place. All fruit, no fuss. Bordeaux latitude with low-key joie de vivre attitude.
The name Le Chateau is a playful tribute to the celebrated chateaus of the Bordeaux region of France. As with France's most important growing region of Bordeaux, Le Chateau produces old-world style wines not of fad or fashion – wines of importance that will endure. As such, Le Chateau works with small family growers from the finest AVA's in the state, including Wahluke Slope, Horse Heaven Hills, Red Mountain, and Columbia Gorge.
Although Bordeaux-style reds were the initial focus of the winery, we are pleased to offer an expansive portfolio of a Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend, Chardonnay, Sangiovese, Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Syrah, and red blends including the acclaimed Masterpiece, a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend that lives up to its name. We invite you to discover our award winning wines and have your own adventure.
